Growing up in the south of England in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, then moving north to Yorkshire for her studies (and her love of Yorkshire tea), Eve has first-hand knowledge of what life is like, and how it differs, at both ends of the country. Now living in London, she has come to know and love the unexplored corners of the city but would encourage any tourist to spend time outside the capital if they want to experience the real Britain!
As a lover of languages and travel, meeting new people and sharing stories has always been a passion of Davina’s. She was born in London but grew up in Winchester, in Hampshire, before moving to Edinburgh to study Chinese and French.
Bill is our Liverpool guide, and moved to Guangzhou in early 2009 to learn Mandarin. He spent two years there teaching English, having a lot of fun and studying Mandarin before returning home to Liverpool.
Sienna is our Bath guide. She was born in Bath and loves to show off her beautiful home city to visitors from the UK and around the world. She became passionate about Chinese history, culture and language when she was 12 years old, and started studying Mandarin as a teenager.
Kate is from a sleepy little town in Dorset, the rural south of England. Desperate to escape to somewhere a bit more lively, at the age of eighteen she spent a month travelling around China and fell in love with the language, the people and of course the food!
